Transfer Students

When an individual transfers to NCCU from another institution, admissions to NCCU as an undergraduate is governed by the following general standards:

  • The transfer applicant must not presently be on probation at the last or current school of attendance and must submit the required Statement of Confidential Information form from the LAST institution enrolled. Also, the transfer applicant must not have been suspended or expelled from the last or current institution.
  • The transfer applicant has a cumulative average of at least a “C” in the institution from which he or she is transferring and is eligible to return to that institution.
  • The transfer applicant has evidence of participating in scholastic, community and civic organizations including leadership participation. 
  • The transfer applicant has attended another college or university, and has earned more than 30 semester hours.  Note:  If the transfer applicant has attended another college or university, but has earned less than 30 semester hours of specific acceptable credit, the transfer applicant must meet all First-Year admission requirements (i.e., both MAR and MCR).

Exceptions:

Transfer applicants may be exempt from having to meet freshman requirements and from sending high school transcripts and/or standardized test scores if they fall in one of the following categories:

  • Category 1: Applicants who were awarded their high school diploma prior to 1988 or
    are at least twenty four (24) years old prior to the beginning of classes, has a cumulative average of at least a “C” in the institution from which they are transferring and is eligible to return to that institution.
  • Category 2: Applicants who have obtained either an associate of arts,  an associate of science,  an associate of fine arts, or a baccalaureate or higher level degree.
  • Category 3: Applicants who have completed a degree under an articulation agreement (i.e., community college).
  • Category 4: Applicants who have completed the 30 Hour Curriculum Plan, including six semester hours of degree-credit hours in each of the following subject areas: English, mathematics, natural sciences, and social and behavioral sciences, and foreign language. For more information about the 30 Hour Curriculum Plan, click here.

Please note the following:

  • NCCU will not accept a transfer course with a grade lower than a “C.” Accepted courses are recorded on a student’s transcript; grades and grade points are not calculated.

NCCU does not accept transfer credit from challenge examinations or for course work where grades of Pass/Fail (P/F) have been given. The maximum number of transferable credits is 64 semester hours from a two-year college. There is currently no limit for transferring credits from a four-year institution.
